We arrived to the Breakwater around noon on Friday. Greeted by Pablo at the valet, we were delighted with how polite and helpful he was. Natalie at the front desk was also very nice and helpful.
That evening we were going to a concert that was about 20 minutes away from the hotel. We took a shuttle that was provided by the hotel. It was $35 round trip for each of us. The driver was awful! It took is 2 hours to get to the venue. The driver was rude and we decided to just take a cab after the show. So do not take a shuttle from the hotel!!!
On Saturday, we had a nice day at the beach. One perk about the hotel is you get vouchers for towels and chairs on the beach... Pretty nice. David helped us out there. All day housekeeping had not come to our room, then after we got back from dinner we noticed they had. We also noticed some spots of blood on our comforter! We called down to room service for a new comforter and no answer for about 20 minutes. Finally, they bring up not a comforter, but a throw blanket.
One thing to be aware of at the Breakwater is the location. If you're like my boyfriend and I who like to get a couple of drinks but go to bed before midnight, this is not the place for you. Between the breakwater and the clevelander next door, music is booming well until 4:30 or 5am. If you like partying the night away, this is your place.
Overall, our stay was just OK. The service stunk 80% of time, partially because everywhere you go (restaurant, bar, etc.) 18% gratuity is added to your check. So nobody has to work for a tip. If you go to south beach have a great time! The atmosphere is very fun during day
